Chronic pain can't usually be cured. With painkillers providing no relief and doctors unable to offer a solution, Nielsen was. Curently I am taking 400mg MS contin and up to 8 endone and still the pain is there allbeit less.
Is there a chance some people, not all, hide under the name cronic pain to get drugs like morhphine long term. Does a doctor not see this is a bad thing long term? Because there has been effort to rehabilitate her by my family and she left us all because she believes she has to be on all these drugs. When we steped in to do something about it (rehab) she left us. She is seeing a chronic pain specialist and there has been no talk of any of the kind of therapies and psycho therapies, exercise etc here, just more drugs.

Thanks mac, and I am very proud of myself. I worked hard to get to where I am for almost 10 years now! It was the hardest thing that I EVER did!! and yeah Balbanese we are all in recovery over something, but believe me, some things are harder to recover from than others! 16 Sep 2012.
Hi kronicpain, I thought Celebrex was being yanked from American markets, but I could be confusing Celebrex with a different medication that begins with a 'C'. I hope I'm confusing it with something else! I hope morphine works great for you IF your doctor decides to go that way.
I have taken 20 to 40 mg of oxycontin 3 x daily for pain for the past 12 years and can not go any more than 10 to 12 hours off my medication without.
However, after other Day Surgery procedures pain relief may be required and this is usually taken in the form of oral (Also known as Endone or Oxycontin. ).
Oxycodone. (Also known as Endone or Oxycontin. ) These are strong pain relieving drugs that are only available on prescription for short-term use. Usually they are only given to you in hospital. Sometimes you may be sent home with these medications. They are stronger than codeine and are even more likely to cause drowsiness, nausea and vomiting. They may cause constipation and are more addictive than codeine.
Piroxicam. (Commonly known as Feldene ).
Celecoxib. (Commonly known as Celebrex ) Aspirin.
Some people may already take one of these drugs regularly, if, for example, they have arthritis.
The painkiller, called tapentadol ER, could provide a new alternative for the relief of chronic pain if approved by the FDA. Fewer patients taking tapentadol ER tablets suffered constipation, nausea, and bouts of vomiting than people on oxycodone, the study shows. Also, tapentadol.

This fixed-dose combination offers several advantages: lower individual drug or chronic musculoskeletal pain, including when complicated by a neuropathic.
The combination of two analgesic agents offers several advantages in the treatment of chronic pain. Paracetamol (acetaminophen) has central analgesic activity without a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID)-like or opioid-like effect. Oxycodone is a semisynthetic opioid agonist. The oral fixed-dose combination of oxycodone and paracetamol immediate-release formulation has a synergistic mechanism of action that is useful for moderate-to-severe pain and for nonresponders to NSAIDs or paracetamol alone. This fixed-dose combination offers several advantages: lower individual drug doses can be used because of their synergistic mechanisms of action, its opioid-sparing effect and it has a good efficacy and tolerability profile. Efficacy and safety of this fixed-dose combination were assessed in a wide range of clinical settings: in patients with osteoarthritis or chronic musculoskeletal pain, including when complicated by a neuropathic component; for chronic pain in elderly patients; cancer-related pain; postoperative pain; and for neuropathic pain, in the latter case usually given in combination with an NSAID or other drugs. The large variety of indications for which this fixed-dose combination may be useful can be attributed to the pharmacological synergy between oxycodone and paracetamol and because lower individual drug dosages can be used, suggesting that this should be a first-line agent for the treatment of chronic moderate-to-severe pain.
